KNUT’S WORLD

“Does she only paint cats?” do you ask.

The thing is, at the moment  I can just grab this bit of time, in the morning. At least I have this, there will be better times for bigger paintings, but for now it’s this. Oskar and Knut. Knut and Oskar. Actually, more of Knut cause Oskar is a respectable older tomcat, he appreciates to be my model but after a while he gets sleepy and goes downstairs for a nap on his (uh, my)  favorite armchair.

My Father’s Garden

This is a painting I did in Germany, and I posted in on my Parisdreamtime blog already. Nevertheless I think the people who come here do not necessarily go there, so here it is. This is really about how I FEEL this garden and what it represents for me. Snuggling up in it, I feel safe. Back in Paris now, we finally have a fine summer, too. Have a wonderful day, enjoy nature and the fleeting moment, greetings from me to you, Andrea. AHdP

Ink and oil on paper (Canson 24 x 32 cm – 250)

Summer

I have taken an unfinished sketchbook, with drawings that I did 4 years ago. How time flies. The drawings in there looked naked, I drew them in the countryside, around cows.

Cows and Colors – Ink drawing, oil pastel, water-color

 

I decided to put some more ink drawings on top of the old ones, and play with color and ideas.

Sketching recipe: Ingredients: sketchbook, pencil, pen, ink color, things you like, and a sprinkle of fun.

Allow yourself being intuitive, you sketchbook doesn’t have any expectations….draw anything you feel attracted to, cats, laundry, food, trees, flowers, faces. You’ll thank me later when you look into your sketchbook, after a few weeks, and there they are, your drawings, sparkling little souvenirs!
